Marchesa “Markie” Scalia, the adorable 2-year-old daughter of Lauren Manzo Scalia, recently grabbed the social media spotlight in her family when her sweet stage fright at a school performance led to a viral video after the footage was posted by her grandmother, Caroline Manzo.

How to Watch

Catch up on Manzo'd With Children on the Bravo App.

“My precious little girl - the bow at the end kills me,” The Real Housewives of New Jersey and Manzo'd with Children alum, who just took her extended family on a holiday field trip, captioned the video that she posted to Instagram. Caroline's short video clip shows her granddaughter basically bawling while she's being applauded by the crowd, but Markie does somehow still manage to take a little bow in the midst of her terror. It's wonderful to watch.

Check out the hysterical clip below:

Aww — just when you thought she couldn’t get any cuter! By the way, in case you missed it, Markie had an equally memorable reaction while attempting to pose for her school photos back in October. Clearly, she doesn't exactly share her family’s affinity for entertaining others.

Though Caroline couldn’t resist sharing the adorable moment, she wasn’t the only Manzo family member to do so. Her son, Albie Manzo, also posted it on Instagram with the hilarious (and all too relatable) caption, “’I’m fine, everything’s fine’ — Markie.” 

Don’t worry, Markie — we’ve all been there!

"Proof my daughter will always be cooler than me," Lauren wrote in the comments of the Barstool Instagram post, adding, "She made it to barstool."

"YES. Iconic," Ashley Holmes Malleo, the daughter of RHONJ alum Jacqueline Laurita who has become a mom herself, replied rather accurately.

"This is epic, and yes, she's way cooler than all of us!" Caroline wrote after Lauren and Ashley's comments in her post.

Agreed, Caroline — Markie is definitely way, way cooler than all of us! A star is born
